Bead Society Orange County

Located in sunny southern California, the Bead Society provides a beaders paradise for networking, workshops and the exchange of ideas along with opportunities to create, present and sell handmade artisan work. The Bead Society is an affiliate of the Bowers Museum and as such, provides monetary support through proceeds from the annual Art of Adorning Bead Bazaar, the collection of dues and donations.
